Verdict

Ex-pointer EARLY DAYS showed ability over hurdles last season and is entitled to strip fitter for her reappearance, so she makes plenty of appeal with improvement on the cards now switched to chasing against some moderate opposition. Clondaw Robin and En Coeur are definite players given they arrive in form, but both have their limitations.
